Colonia San Antonio house description
Casa de Mira, is a new house, which incorporates the best of traditional Mexican architecture.
Its main entryway is through a huge antique doorway and portico with bovida ceiling and beautiful plantings. It is located on a quiet tree-lined street with no through traffic.
It is located in convenient Colonia San Antonio, just a 10 to 15 minute walk to the Jardin, which is at the heart of the historic Centro district.
It is a similar distance to the Instituto Allende, Belles Artes, Theatro Angela Peralta, the Biblioteca Publica (the English public library), the craft market and other places of interest.
There are excellent restaurants and markets within an easy five-minute walk from the casa.
The house is three story, with kitchen, dining room, living room, patio with fountain, half bath and garage on the first floor, two bedrooms and a study on the second floor, master bedroom, reading room and terrace on the third floor.
A large terrace with shaded wet bar with small refrigerator, garden furniture, charcoal grill, and beautiful plantings on the roof. All bedrooms have their own bathroom.
Both of the terraces, each with their own tables with umbrellas and chairs, have magnificent views over the city. The roof-garden terrace also has a chaise lounge and comfortable chairs for reading and relaxing.
The elevator is very convenient for bringing food and dishes from the kitchen to the terraces on a tea caddy bought for this purpose. It is a wonderful experience to be on either of the terraces as the sun is going down and watch the lights come on in San Miguel including the beautifully illuminated Parroquia and the Church of the Immaculate Conception.
The casa is fully equipped with two television sets, radio with CD Player, DVD, a computer (with high speed internet access) and printer, washing machine and dryer. The kitchen has a brand new microwave, toaster, toaster oven, blender, juicer, pressure cooker, food processor and everything else needed for making delicious meals.
The house is fully furnished with premium quality furniture and furnishings, and is decorated with paintings and other artwork by well-known artists, many of them local artists. The walls have been painted in typical traditional Mexican colors and the rugs have been made to order to match the colors of the house, its paintings and its furniture.
The rental includes maid service twice per week and all utilities.

ReviewsWrite a review
We booked Casa de Mira for our vacation and absolutely loved it. The pictures on the website show about 30% of the beauty of the this home. When we arrived we were greeted by a very nice woman who does the housekeeping, she showed us the house and even gave us great advice on places to eat and visit around town. We found the terrace to have a beautiful view of the town and we found ourselves going up there to eat most of the time, even took our coffee mugs up there to get our mornings started right. The beds were very comfortable and we found the elevator to be a great help. The short walk into town is a nice workout as its mostly uphill, but it is a very nice walk as the town is a must see walking. There was 6 of us in the group and there is enough space in house for each of us to have privacy and relax. We have already talked about coming back for a second trip sometime next year. Thank you Daren and Mira for allowing us into your home.

Great Casa in San Miguel
Great Casa in San Miguel
I add my voice to those who laud this Casa. It is a beautiful house in a great neighborhood. It is spacious, well designed and very comfortable. Excellent furnishings and beautiful colors. It is well located, about 10-15minute walk to the Jardin, some uphill, on stone sidewalks - there's alot to see on the way, so it sometimes took longer. A very nice neighborhood, with restaurants and small markets within a few minutes. The elevator was great for our older visitor, who was able to get to all floors.The rental listing and pictures are all accurate - its a very charming place to stay, very clean and well maintained. We did not have a car, didn't need one, and wouldn't recommend one for in-town, as the streets are of stone and cobblestone, and very narrow. I would certainly stay here again, and would recommend this property to my friends and relatives.

Casa Mira has it all.......comfort, luxury, convience and location. Everywhere you look is a photo op. Mira & Daren have provided everything you could possibly need or want. The casa is on a quiet street but you can easily get a taxi if needed. After spending a day sightseeing we always looked forward to returning to Casa Mira with all its fine amenities. In fact we can't wait to return in 2014. Thank you Mira and Daren for being wonderful hosts and allowing us to make your home ours for the month.

Casa de Mira was perfection
Casa de Mira was perfection
We were lucky enough to be invited by friends to stay with them at Casa de Mira for a week. What a lovely home. The beds were comfortable with a full bathroom in each bedroom, the kitchen fully stocked with everything you need to prepare meals at home, the livingroom and diningroom furniture were beautiful and comfortable, but best of all the balcony on the top floor was amazing. The view of the city from this balcony was beautiful and the elevator made having meals of this balcony easy to arrange. The Casa is on a dead end street, so there is very little traffic, yet it was an easy walk to all the sights, shopping and restaurants. Congratulations Daren and Mira on making Casa de Mira such a wonderful place to be.

Everything you want & more!
Everything you want & more!
Casa Mira is “as advertised”! Not only is the home warmly and eclectically decorated, it lacks for nothing in comfort: wonderful bedding, a beautifully equipped kitchen, good lighting, electronics for business and pleasure, and the glow of four fireplaces when it gets cool. Mira and Daren have thought of every need. Enjoy your meals in the (kitchen equipped) rooftop garden with exceptional views across San Miguel de Allende or curl up with a book on the sunny third floor terrace. Walk everywhere you need to go; during the two months we were here, we used a taxi only to return from the Mega. The Jardin is less than a 15 minute walk, Juan de Dios Mercado and Warren Hardy Spanish School are a five-minute walk and the excellent seafood soup of Mariscolandia is around the corner. Calle Alemeda has no traffic. Our best stay ever in SMA!

Our Favorite San Miguel Rental Yet!
Our Favorite San Miguel Rental Yet!
We recently rented Casa de Mira for the month of October. This was our best San Miguel rental yet! The casa was even better than the pictures, especially the views. The owners have considered everything to make their guests comfortable. Daren and Mira were very helpful in answering any questions and their suggestions for neighborhood restaurants were right on! The beds and linens were luxury hotel quality and the kitchen was fully stocked with all appliances and cookware. We felt perfectly safe in this mixed neighborhood and made several friends who were renting just around the corner on Vergel. Unlike previous rentals, all the furniture was super comfortable. We definitely considered this "home" for our four week stay. I will definitely consider Casa de Mira for a future rental.

Casa de Mira is Just Perfect!
Casa de Mira is Just Perfect!
We were fortunate to have been asked for a two week visit by good friends who had rented Casa de Mira for the month of February 2011. We loved Casa de Mira and found it to be beautifully designed, tastefully decorated and exceptionally well maintained. Moreover, the house is equipped with all sorts of gadgets and extras that the owners have provided in anticipation of their guests' every need. The location is just perfect: a pleasant walk to the Centro Historico and there are some wonderful local restaurants just a short walk away -- and these restaurants are identified in the comprehensive loose leaf binder that the owners have very thoughtfully prepared and left at the house for use by their guests. We must also mention that the view from the upper deck is simply breathtaking -- day or night! We would be happy to rent this house in the future and we can't wait to return!

After staying in several different houses and neighborhoods in San Miguel we must say that Casa de Mira is our very favorite. The house is beautifully decorated and the owners have thought of every detail to assure your luxurious comfort. The neighborhood is full of charm and an easy walk to the Jardin. We have stayed at Casa de Mira twice and are looking forward to our return!

I just read the comment in the guestbook and have to totally agree with everything that was said. What a fun and beautiful place to stay. We had such a nice time at Casa Mira that I'm sure we will return. Darren and Mira could not be nicer to deal with. They were always helpful with any questions we might have. We loved the comfortable beds and duvet covers. We were there for a cold and rainy February, but we couldn't have been more comfortable in their charming Casa. The rooftop view is amazing.

We are a family of four adults who love to travel and almost always rent condos, houses, cottages, or villas at our destinations. Of all the places we have stayed, Casa de Mira is right at the top in terms of comfort, location, amenities, and value. The description and the pictures are completely accurate – everything is as beautiful, clean and comfortable as it looks. The upper level patio is a great place to relax with a lovely view of the town. The street has no traffic, the walk to town is not difficult and we felt completely safe walking, even at night. The kitchen has everything you need in terms of equipment and even includes lots of basics such as salt, pepper, oil, spices and even coffee. Although it was cold at night during our stay in December, there were ample heaters in the house to keep us warm. The computer was great and Wi-Fi also allowed us to use our laptop all over the house. Finally, the owners are very responsive to requests and helpful in every way. I highly recommend this lovely vacation home.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: I was born in Oslo, Norway and came to New York to see what America was all about. I intended to return to Norway, but my cousin from Norway, who was an attorney in New York City, introduced me to Daren, another attorney in the same law firm, and a year later we got married. We have two daughters, one now living with her family next door to us and one living with her family five minutes from us. We have a total of four grandchildren. We have lived in Cold Spring Harbor, New York, for over 35 years. Until I had a family, I worked for Pan American. Daren, an attorney specializing in land use, is still working as a partner in a two lawyer law firm in Glen Cove, New York
Why the Owner Chose Colonia San Antonio:
Daren and I twice rented a house around the corner from our casa, and we loved it and San Miguel so much that we decided to buy a house of our own in the area. The weather is always so beautiful in San Miguel. This part of Colonia San Antonio is great, and we feel very safe. There is good food shoping and many fine restaurants right in the neighborhood. San Juan de Dios Market is less than a five minute walk from the casa. We have met a lot of Americas and Canadians in the area, and we also enjoy our many fine Mexican friends and neighbors.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our house is decorated with beautiful Mexican colors and paintings by local artists. There is a fountain in the ground floor patio and a garden top floor terrace with wet bar where we enjoy evening drinks and most of our meals al fresco. The views from both the third floor terrace and the top floor terrace are magnificent. We bring our meals from the kitchen to the top terrace in our elevator. Our street, Calle Alameda, has no through traffic and is very quiet. It is an easy 10 to 15 minute walk from our casa to the Jardin, a garden plaza which is the center of communal life in San Miguel. Bands play there every night and people come to dance, stroll, sit on the benches and chat, or just observe the many people who gather to spend a pleasant evening.
